Grants of up to $25,000 to Wyoming and Colorado nonprofit organizations, government agencies, hospitals, and academic institutions to support organ donation and transplantation. Funding is intended to support projects in the areas of research, education, and support for families. Projects should influence change, build partnerships, break down barriers, and positively affect the donation and transplant community.

The Foundation funds efforts in Colorado and Wyoming that provide access to resources and education for those affected by organ and tissue donation and transplantation. The Foundation also supports living donors and their families. To do this, the Foundation provides funding in three areas: Education, Family Assistance, and Research (social and clinical).

New this year! The Donor Alliance Foundation will focus on addressing system barriers that prohibit people from receiving an organ and/or tissue transplant. The Foundation will do this by providing equitable and equal access to donation and transplantation resources through funding in three program areas: education, family assistance and research. It is The Foundation’s goal for everyone in Colorado and Wyoming to have equal and equitable access to donation and transplantation resources that enable the gift of life.

To do this, the Foundation plans to:

  • Provide access to donation and transplantation resources for underinsured, vulnerable, and socio-economically disadvantaged populations and those living in rural areas of Colorado and Wyoming who are eligible for transplant or already on the transplant list
  • Continue the emphasis on Family Assistance funding for transplant patients and families
  • Seek applicants that are or planning to provide education to reach their audiences in new and innovative ways
  • Remain nimble regarding changes or shifts needed to accomplish grantee goals or priorities
  • Continued focus on Pancreas research and projects related to gathering data on benefits of pancreas transplantation

Qualifying organizations can apply to receive funding to:

  • Provide family assistance to patients waiting for a transplant or who are post-transplant and their families, as well as living donors
  • Assist service providers helping with transportation, food, housing, gas and other related expenses for families in need pre-, post- and during transplant
  • Provide grief assistance and compassion support for donor families
  • Offer new and innovative approaches to education about donation and transplantation through hospitals, governmental agencies, foundations and related nonprofit community health-serving organizations, given reduced social interaction
  • Conduct clinical and social research to further the donation and transplantation field

The Foundation will fund:

  • Efforts to meet the needs of patients pre- and post-transplant who have a financial need with limited or no access to funds
  • Projects that provide equal and equitable access to donation and transplantation resources that enable the gift of life
  • New and innovative education approaches about donation and transplantation to reach audiences in populations who may not be aware of their options, given reduced social interaction
  • Programs and services that offer grief assistance and compassion support in Colorado and Wyoming
  • Efforts to increase living donation
  • Medical and social research related to transplantation, to provide an opportunity to conduct pilot studies or early exploration (e.g., seed grants)

Estimated Size of Grant:

The Donor Alliance Foundation anticipates making grants ranging in size from $5,000 up to $25,000. The Foundation will continue to allocate more funding for Family Assistance grants in the 2023 cycle due to continued needs caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Term of Contract:

The Donor Alliance Foundation makes one-year grants; funds must be expended from January 1, 2023 through December 31, 2023.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

The Donor Alliance Foundation accepts proposals from nonprofit community health-serving organizations, nonprofit hospitals, academic institutions, governmental agencies, foundations and associations supporting donation and transplantation efforts.

Applicants must be 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations with tax-exempt classification from the Internal Revenue Service; be a tax-supported institution such as a hospital, government or nonprofit organization; or must have a formal fiscal sponsorship arrangement with a tax-exempt organization.
